We recommend that you read this research for a map of the vendor landscape to chart your firm’s low-code journey.
Key takeaways from the report include:
Low- Code Platforms Spreading Fast: Customer interest in low-code development platforms runs high, reflected in high double-digit growth for the leading vendors as well as many smaller providers. Forrester estimates aggregate 2017 revenues of $3.8 billion.
Market Segmentation Reshuffles: Two new segments have emerged. Low-code platforms for AD&D target pro development groups with rich tooling and promises of high scale. Low-code platforms for business developers target non-traditional developers with simple tooling and more modest scale.
Key Challenge - Deliver AI Innovation: The low-code vendors targeting enterprise AD&D established their positions based on strength in development of web applications. As customers rely on low-code for more use cases, these vendors must add new technologies to their platforms, with machine learning, bots, and streaming data at the top of the priority list.
Throughout the report, Forrester discusses which vendor fits into which category and has indicated FlowForma BPM is a low-code platform for business developers, who prefer a “no-code” message. FlowForma is cited as one of two vendors with a BPM tool that seeks to empower business experts:
“[Another vendor] and FlowForma BPM both seek to empower business experts to create workflow applications.” 1
